About the Owner
Robert Redmond CMI
Certified Master Inspector Robert Redmond, Owner and Chief inspector at Redmond Home Inspections, has always enjoyed working with others. He has a strong background in business and customer service and draws on this experience to give his customers the information they need to make informed decisions for their homes. Being in the industry for over 7 years, he has seen inspectors come and go. Being an unlicensed province for Home Inspectors it’s hard to know who you can trust. Having first been trained by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) which consisted of not only online but in school and onsite training, he then joined the largest Home Inspectors Association, InterNACHI, and completed hundreds of hours of training to gain his Certified Professional Inspector Designation. While with InterNACHI Robert was awarded from 2014-2017 the Educational Achievement Award for completing 50 hours or more of Continuing Education each year.
In 2016, Robert became Certified to perform Mold and Asbestos sampling after the home he was renting experienced flooding, and with a landlord that wouldn’t fix the issue mold started to spread throughout and his new born daughter got very sick. Then in 2017, Robert trained at Carson Dunlop in Toronto to become Certified in Commercial Inspections. In 2018 Robert started to perform Energy Audits for the Low-Income Gas and Electric Programs helping out thousands of families throughout Ontario. In 2019, Robert received his REA (Registered Energy Advisor) through National Resource Canada (NRCan). In February 2022, Robert achieved the highest Designation in our industry Certified Master Inspector.
Buying his first home at 21, a 100-year-old 1.5 story and gutting the whole house down to the framing he learned the ins and outs of construction the hard way. He did what he thought he was supposed to do, he hired the inspector his agent referred before buying. After finding the house was full of knob and tube wiring that was missed during the inspection, vermiculite insulation in the walls and attic that was missed as well as numerous other items he has experienced first-hand what you get when you don’t do your research on who you are hiring. Never rely solely on your agent’s referral, do your research and lookup who you’re trusting to give you that information on the biggest purchase of your life.

Robert takes from this past experience as well as the many years since renovating his new home to help educate new home buyers especially, on the findings found during the inspection. Almost anyone can be trained to become a home inspector but it takes a very special person to be able to relay the information to the client in a way that isn’t going to scare them unnecessarily but ensure they understand the findings and how to proceed. Professionalism and Integrity are two of his top priorities. You can be rest assured that you, the client is his top priority. Many inspectors rely on the constant referrals from agents which means that you, the client no longer are their top priority. Making that agent happy to keep those referrals coming can compromise the inspector, leading to what we call in the inspection industry “soft reports”.
This is the downplaying or omission of issues to make sure that the sale goes through. This is a practice that Robert will never be a part of. Take the time to do your research and make the best decision for you.
Additionally, Robert has received the Gerry Beaumont Educational Achievement Award from 2014-2017 for excellence in Continuing Education. He has completed more than 50 hours of accredited courses annually, which keeps him at the forefront of industry innovation, policy and procedure.
Choosing the right home inspector can be difficult. Unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won’t meet me until our appointment. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing.
Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort. If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.
This, I promise you.
